V(ouch!)ers hurt our public schools and raid taxpayer coffers

Voucher programs run counter to founding principles of the United States. A cornerstone of America is our "common school" — free, publicly supported schools open to all children regardless of social class, religion, ethnicity, gender or country of origin.
